The legendary comedian, author and actor Bill Cosby will perform in Missoula at the Adams Center on The University of Montana campus on Friday, November 15 at 7:30 p.m.

UM Productions Marketing Coordinator Heather Krebsbach said her staff has been working on getting Cosby to come to Missoula for quite some time.

We've been doing comedy shows for awhile now," Krebsbach said Wednesday afternoon. "We just had a sellout performance with Jeff Dunham, so we thought it would be great to bring in Bill Cosby."

A news release provided by the university reads in part, "Cosby represents the voice of a vast, ordinary world. Audiences seem to identify with his character and find themselves in similar situations. He gives the twist of the ridiculous to everyday faults, foibles, and successes, and makes them a recognizable slice of life."

Tickets for Bill Cosby go on sale Friday, May 10 and cost between $44 and $54 plus applicable fees. They can be purchased at all GrizTix locations, including Southgate Mall, Wordens Market, The Source in the University Center, MSO Hub and in the Adams Center Box Office. Call 1-888-MONTANA or online.
